My Rooster Johnny

Hi!   Here is my Pekin (Cochin) Bantam Rooster Johnny! He is a Blue Splash in Colour. I got him when he was 1 Year and 7 Months old from a "Rooster Bachelor Pad".

Freddie and his very horrible year.

This is little Freddie. A few weeks ago a neighbour told me that she had seen two men around my chicken pens. Anxious, my son and I went to investigate.
